man you guys have some beauties!!! both the restores and the choppers. I like the black scheme, mine's already got nothing but black or chrome from the PO, except the slightest bit of leftover blue on the tank bolt hole, I think when it gets painted, if it gets it, it'll be black.
I finally got a good pic of my 1957 A10 Spitfire Scrambler. I've wiped down nearly all I can reach, and polished anything chrome. she'll probably look much like this even with all the work I still have ahead of me, most of that is internal. I want it working as well as I can get before any cosmetics get funding... except maybe badges.
